June 16 - 21, 2013
Immerse yourself in a week of all things avian, from bird biology to nesting behavior,
songs, migration and conservation. Learn in small-group settings from pros including field guide author Kenn Kaufman, field biologist Tom Johnson, Project Puffin founder Stephen Kress, biologist Sara Morris, and author and ornithologist Scott Weidensaul.
Field Ornithology includes field trips to both mainland and coastal habitats including
offshore puffin islands (birding by boat), windswept blueberry barrens, lush grasslands, and sphagnum bog forests. Add
some of the most respected bird experts in the country, and you have Field Ornithology on Hog Island. You'll learn in the field - experiencing the dawn chorus with experts in birdsong at your side; landing on seabird nesting islands to observe nesting behavior at arm's-length; discussing coloniality in the midst of a racous heronry.
Prices include meals, housing, instruction and all boat trips. Participants must arrange transportation to and from the Audubon dock in Bremen at the start and end of the session (see directions page). Scholarships are availalble. Also check with your local Audubon chapter or bird club.
